Weaning isn’t a baby stage I love. There I said it. I found it quite stressful with Little Man and this time round with Little Lady it has been tricky for a whole new set of reasons. The main one being that due to her prematurity (she was 11 weeks early) her digestive system was ready for food at 6 months but she didn’t really get what to do with food as her corrected age was a lot younger. Because of this and advice from her consultant we have spent a lot of time on the puree stage so I am always on the look out for new and interesting baby food to try. We have been testing Babease baby food the last couple of weeks and they are definitely a hit with Little Lady.
If you haven’t heard of Babease before they are fairly new on the baby food block and have a slightly different take on the sort of baby food they produce. Their recipes have a more vegetable base and move away from fruit sweetening things for those little taste buds. Their food is organic and created by chefs and nutritionists whose focus is to develop baby’s savoury palettes. I really liked the sound of this because with Little Man I used a lot of food sweetened with apple and then struggled to get him to eat things without it for a while creating myself a whole new problem!
We were sent a variety of different recipes from Babease and all of them sound so yummy and a lot more like food that we as adults would have. They have stage 1 food for around 6 months which are primarily smooth vegetables. The stage 1 range includes things like Butternut Squash, Carrot & Broccoli and Pumpkin & Pea. They also have a stage 2 range for around 7 months which is more developed in both the taste and texture, some of these include Pumpkin, Chickpea, Tomato & Brown Rice With Coconut Milk, Herbs & Mild Masala and Broccoli, Parsnip & Lentils With Onion, Tomato, Quinoa, Fennel, Rapeseed Oil & Herbs. Sound yummy don’t they?
So, what did we think? Babease have got a big ten out of ten from both me and Little Lady. Little Lady has really enjoyed all the pouches she has tried so far. As you can see from the photos she is more than happy to be eating them for dinner! I like them because I know there’s no nasties in there and hopefully they will mature her taste buds nicely and she likes them because they taste nice. Win win! Keeping both Mummy & baby happy can be a tall order but I really believe they have done that with this range.
I am not the most confident of cooks and another thing I really liked about Babease was the information on their website. They have a section with every ingredient listed on there that they use in their food; it explains why they use it, how they use it and even tips on how to use it in your own cooking. Definitely worth a look if you are looking for inspiration.
We loved Babease and I will definitely be getting some in my next food shop. Head over to the Babease website to see where you can grab some for yourself.
